Brooks Williams is a Cambridge UK based, Statesboro, Georgia USA born guitarist singer and songwriter.
He is named one of WUMB-FM Boston's Top 100 All-Time Artists and is listed in the Top 100 Acoustic Guitarists. Rave reviews have come in from RnR, Fatea, Blues Matters, Q and Songlines.
Known for both solos shows and collaborations (with the likes of Boo Hewerdine, Rab Noakes, Sloan Wainwright and Hans Theessink), Brooks is one of roots music's guiding lights. "An accomplished guitarist in possession of rich vocal powers and a talent for lyrical imagery, his songs are imbued with uplifting generosity." (RnR)
A veteran of the roots music world with thirty recordings in as many years, over the days of the pandemic Brooks has continued to reach out to his fans in a number of ways. Firstly, creating virtual collaborations, called Lockdown Duets, with Aaron Catlow, Christine Collister, Katie Spencer, Dan Walsh, Henry Parker and Rob Noakes. Secondly, by updating his song archive of free lyrics, chords, music and guitar TAB. Thirdly, creating videos of song requests and guitar lesson requests on his YouTube channel. “He has a beautiful voice you just melt into.” AmericanaUK “He is a lovely player, a lovely singer and a great writer. Brooks Williams is the real thing.” Martin Simpson
